How to upgrade Miniconda installation on windows


Please help me to understand how the upgrade works for miniconda on windows.
I have installed Miniconda3 Py39_23.11.0-1,Miniconda3 Py39_23.11.0-2,Miniconda3 Py310_23.11.0-2,Miniconda3 Py311_23.11.0-2 all of them coexists.
Silent upgrading is not working until we change installation directory.
Is this intended behavior?

For the most part you shouldn’t need to install a new version of miniconda directly (by downloading a new installer). Instead you can just upgrade the conda within the old environment when needed by doing conda update -c base conda. You can then create different environments for different Python versions.
